I Think I Broke a Mirror, or Something  
I'm ready for 2014 to be over.

Spent Saturday late afternoon and evening in the ER with my brother, Sunday night he was admitted and early Monday he had emergency surgery. Have spent most of my days and evenings at the hospital. Hopefully, he'll be able to come home by Saturday. When Nin and I have been home, we've been taking care of the orchard, chickens, veg garden, plus all the indoor varmints. We've averaged dinner at midnight the last few days. Absolutely pooped. Needless to say, I'm totally out of the loop as far as reading DW/LJ. About the only thing I've managed is to read Twitter and post a few 'around the hospital' photos to Instagram.

He had emergency surgery for a twisted bowel about 15 yrs ago. Turns out the surgery was botched, according to surgeon here. They'd done something wrong with the the way they reconnected things (he drew pictures on the whiteboard of what it was like and how he put it back the way it was supposed to be)and had left a piece of the dead bowel in, which was ready to perforate. He was as hopping mad as a nice Mormon doctor can be over the whole thing. I'm very thankful the ER doctor insisted bro come back the next day for a followup instead of just giving him antibiotics and calling it a day since the initial diagnosis was an infection in the intestine.

Saw that, but I barely have time to keep up the new shows on. Sounds like fun though.
